TCBCast 109: LIVE with Ryan Droste, Jaime Kay & Jamie Kelley

Play
Read more

This week on TCBCast, it's one of our biggest episodes ever...it's the full-length show we did LIVE! With special co-hosts Ryan Droste and Jaime Kay joining Gurdip & Justin on the 1st ever TCBCast Random Albums Tournament. Each host gets 2 randomly drawn Elvis albums and then have to argue that their albums are the best! It's chaos on a mass scale but a ton of fun! Then, Justin phones a friend mid-show and brings in another "Jamie K" as Jamie Kelley joins the fray, tapping in for Jaime Kay when she has to take off for a few minutes. Then once a winner is declared, we discuss our Songs of the Week, highlighting the histories behind 4 Elvis songs. Jaime Kay takes us to church for the rockin' "Let Us Pray" from 1969, while Gurdip surprises everyone with the very early country Sun Records cut, "I'll Never Let You Go (Little Darlin')." Justin starts to highlight "C'mon Everybody," but it quickly get sidetracked by a mini-review of "Viva Las Vegas" when Gurdip & Jaime Kay come to blows over Ann-Margret. But Ryan brings it all home with the rockabilly classic "Baby Let's Play House."

Thanks to everyone who tuned in to our Facebook Live broadcast, and we wanted to make sure everyone else gets a chance to hear the whole broadcast, so clocking in at just over 3 hours, this is the LONGEST TCBCast by far!

Ryan rejoins Justin & Gurdip for his first episode of 2020 to review the 1962 boxing film "Kid Galahad." The guys explore the story's history as a novel by Francis Wallace, as an early 1937 film directed by "King Creole"'s Michael Curtiz, and Justin even manages to track down a radio theatre adaptation. Is the movie one of Elvis' stronger outings, and do Elvis' musical moments actually hurt the movie's intentions? Plus, how far do the guys make it before a "Rocky" joke gets made? All this and more in this week's TCBCast! Next week, we'll conclude the "Kid Galahad" review and tackle our Songs of the Week!

TCBCast 090: Elvis' Wokest Movie feat. Ryan Droste

Play
Read more

Gurdip, Justin & Ryan wrap up a lengthy deep dive into Elvis' last feature length film, 1969's "Change of Habit." Justin & Ryan explain why the film resonates with them, from its humor and grounded nature compared to Elvis' other films, to its good-hearted-if-clumsy attempt to address social injustices that are unfortunately still very real today.

Then, for Song of the Week, Ryan's so square he exits the show early to go to bed, but you won't care, because Gurdip parties it up tackling the Latin-flavored early 60s dance song "Kiss Me Quick" and Justin goes deep for a one-off jam recording from 1970.

Justin appeared on the most recent episode of The Jungle Room Podcast with Jaime Kay to discuss the influence of Roy Hamilton's music on Elvis' career. Check it out here: https://audioboom.com/posts/7418419-you-ll-never-walk-alone

Featured Songs of the Week: Gurdip: Kiss Me Quick Justin: I Didn't Make It On Playing Guitar Ryan: (You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care

For its 50th Anniversary, Gurdip, Ryan & Justin sit down to review Elvis' final dramatic role in "Change of Habit." Justin ranks it as his favorite Elvis film of all time, Ryan thinks highly of it, but Gurdip's not sold just yet - can his mind be changed? From its formation as a Mary Tyler Moore vehicle, to its status as an early film depiction of autism, "Change of Habit" marks a wildly different type of Elvis film (and, appropriately, a wildly different TCBCast review!) Plus, Gurdip wallops Justin in a head-to-head trivia challenge! Stay tuned next week for Songs of the Week, and the thrilling conclusion to our review of "Change of Habit."

Gurdip is taking the week off so Justin sits down with Ryan to take a look at some of the harder-to-find remixes and reworkings of Elvis' music in his collection. From classic techno and mashups to reggae and rap mixes, you'll be surprised how Elvis' music has inspired DJs and producers to create both official and bootleg remixes. Then for Song of the Week, Ryan highlights a sweet, longing pop ballad from the early 60s with a surprising 90s TV show connection, while Justin finds something more profound and thought-provoking somewhere in the Heart of Rome.

Please note: This episode contains an historical recording featuring coarse language.

Gurdip & Justin are joined by Ryan for a monumental two-parter. First up is discussion about recent developments and speculation on Baz Luhrmann's Elvis biopic, then Gurdip pits Justin & Ryan against each other in the first-ever Head-To-Head Trivia Challenge!

Then this week's main topic begins with a deep dive in to the September 1-3, 1956 recording sessions. From an exciting trio of Little Richard covers to a mix of pop and ballad tunes, the sessions marked a creative milestone for Elvis, leading to his first LP not padded out by songs from in the can.

Just as things are wrapping up on the sessions, Ryan teases a discussion about teaching his young, 21st century teenage history students about Elvis' landmark September 9, 1956 appearance on the Ed Sullivan show - but that topic, and Songs of the Week, will be continued in next week's episode!
